How To Make Your Own Thieves Foaming Hand Soap

It is summertime and the kids do a lot of outdoor playing.  A lot of outdoor playing leads to a lot of hand washing and a lot of hand washing leads to every single one of my foaming hand soap stations being in a constant state of empty.

It will be a little while until my next custom box will hit my doorstep with my precious Thieves foaming hand soap.  I could scream, or cry, or wring my hands in frustration orrrrr I could just whip up a batch myself.

Color me shocked when I realized how easy it was for me to make a quality hand soap, that would do what we need it to do, in mere minutes.  Now imagine me full on happy dancing when I realized that my children could also make the foaming hand soap.  Maybe now we won’t have empty soap dispensers all the time!

Ok, now that I have stopped laughing at my last silly comment, I can show you how to make this Thieves foaming hand soap.

Next time you are faced with an empty foaming hand soap pump, I encourage you to give this DIY a Try!

**Here is a Tip that may help you in the whole quest of having the children mix up the next batch.  After you show them where the supplies are to make it, show them how you have taped a copy of the recipe to the inside of the cabinet where the supplies are stored.  Bye Bye excuses!

My girls have very sensitive hands and love Young Living's foaming hand soap. To make the refill for the Lavender foaming hand soap, I replace the thieves essential oil with lavender.
